What are unpaid internships worth in a world where cash rules? A LOT if you’re interning for the Wu.
New York’s very own Wu-Tang Clan allegedly posted an ad on Craigslist offering an intern position with the company. The legendary rap supergroup specifically asked for people interested in posting on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) on their behalf. Among the qualifications for the job, Wu-Tang lists “professional demeanor,” “excellent written communication skills,” and “ability to meet deadlines.”
Six members of the eight-member group are currently working on a new album, A Better Tomorrow (Raekwon and GZA are reportedly not involved). Meantime, their $5 million one-of-a-kind album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, is set to go on tour to museums around the country.
So to all the young people still looking for summer internships: what better way to gain experience than under the wing of Shaolin’s finest? If you want to contribute to Wu-Tang’s enterprise (and you don’t mind doing it for free), send them your credentials.
